    "San Marcos High School has been exceptional as a community for it's size. My Freshmen year was the first year they had rebuilt the school. It can be intimidating attending a high school with 2500 plus students but San Marcos has a warm welcoming like no other. Never have I been hazed or put down by upperclassmen; I truly believe that it is the pride that people carry of being a Knight that allows this. I feel safe at my "second home". There is always energy at the school with the variety of clubs to branch out to people's interests. Yes there are cliques like any other school but the notation "clique" doesn't do a justice of describing school life. The cliques are simply friends that get along more than others. There isn't any discrimination simply because of groups. I see this at every football game where the groups come together to cheer for our team to win and shout against our rivals. My peers have made me happy and proud to be a Knight."

    "The school is great for academics and really tries to instill a solid work ethic. Though when it comes to social issues and diversity the school isn't very diverse or have any deep connection to educate on those issues, but that is just because of the area/population. The school is very accepting of most people and there is limited bullying. I would say this is a great school overall and would recommend people to go there because there are great students. It is simply a high school where you go to sport events, learn, and socialize."

    "As a sophomore attending San Marcos High School, this school provides me with much knowledge, in which I can apply it to both school and the outside world. Its architecture and clean campus, in particular, allows a motivation environment as it stimulates a type of college setting. Additionally, the staff and students are friendly and encourage an excessive amount of school spirit. I can truly see the passion in the faculty and administration as they hope for us to become successful."

    "I've had a great experience at San Marcos High School. The teachers are passionate about helping their students expand upon their knowledge. The faculty as well as my peers have been supportive. Additionally, the campus is very positive and safe. The range of classes offered have contributed to my success. There is a wide variety of AP and Honors classes that help students to push themselves academically. All clubs help to grow or give back to out community. The sports are also competitive, yet exciting. The only thing I would change is the parking dilemma as well as overcrowding of our classrooms. I look forward to becoming an SMHS graduate in June and am so grateful for the wonderful experiences made at this high school."
